- N22 P22 F22 B22
- Balance sheet (22) Suddenly bright and delicious (90)
Ripe peach, different citrus (lemon, orange) ... herbal notes ... lacquer ... vanilla ... roasted peanuts ... baked banana in caramel ... spices (23)
Fruits, oranges and vanilla, spices and tree ... (23)
Finish spicy-citrus ... a drop of varnish ... a tree ... a burning pepper (22)
- Very nice very lovely. A good lowlander.
All kinds of fruit: Citrus,grapefruit,peaches, orange, but also vanilla, cream porridge,grainy, sweet caramel, complex.
Fruity again, peach,grapes, oranges, grains, peppery, and cream vanilla, toffee sweet.
Long for me, toffee again, grapes,oranges, figs, vanilla and lime tones.
- Very typical, very well balanced. A very good Littlemill, but a little lacking, in my opinion, of surprise.
once is not custom, I recognize Littlemill directly. Small spring flowers, sap, plant stem and yellow fruit galore. A herbaceous dryness, too; and even swirls of white alcohol.
First a beautiful fruity is announced. Peach, apricot, mango. Yellow fruit coulis. A strand of rhubarb in the back. A discreet herbaceous. A pinch of spices, non-invasive, in the background.
The spices disappear, the dry plant puts forward, while the fruit is dying.
- With a little more balance on the palate, this would've scored 90 points in my book. But even still this is an excellent Littlemill.
Fruity and sweet with orange flavoured candy, lemon zest and soft melon aromas. Some vanilla and almonds. In the background a hint of wet cardboard, which I find to be signature Littlemill.
Citrus fruits galore, with pink grapefruit at the forefront, followed by bitter lemon. There's also some vanilla and (green) tea in there, as well as a hint of chili pepper and cinnamon.
Mellow spices, grapefruit and melon. Good length.
